When it comes to luxury real estate, Master Brokers Ivan Chorney and Michael Martirena know their stuff. Each have 15 years of experience in the Miami real estate market with more than $100 million in combined sales in 2019 and 2020. Specializing in the Miami Beach luxury lifestyle for high-profile professionals and families, this duo provides white-glove service—including a data-driven marketing plan based on in-depth knowledge of the Miami market—for each and every client. Thanks to their dedication, Wall Street Journal named them as a Top 5 Small Team in Miami-Dade in 2019. At the same time, they ranked as the No. 2 team at One Sotheby’s International Realty (prior to making the switch to Compass in the spring of 2020).
In terms of what’s currently hot, Martirena says that single-family homes in Miami Beach are on fire. However, while the majority of their business comes from the stretch between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour, Chorney and Martirena are no longer solely focused on the barrier island. “We have recently done a fair amount of sales in Edgewater, Downtown Miami, Brickell and now the Grove,” Chorney says. “People are looking at the quality of their living environment more closely, especially since work and home have melded together for so many.”
Regardless of where in the city a client is buying or selling, Chorney and Martirena ensure that each transaction is handled with the utmost integrity. “Mike and I handle ourselves in a very ethical way,” Chorney says. “We serve our clients in the best manner possible and provide an experience rather than just a property search.”
